Leverett House has several dining rooms, common rooms, and other facilities that can be reserved or rented for academic, recreational and cultural activities by Leverett residents.

Contents

Junior Common Room

Located off the main lobby, the JCR is for informal gatherings of students. It includes comfortable furniture and a grand piano. This is Leverett's living room and cannot generally be reserved for student group events. Although private events are discouraged, we are very interested in ideas for House-wide events to expand the usage of the JCR. If you have an idea, please let us know (See JCR Activity Proposal Instructions).

Senior Common Room

This smaller room, located off the dining hall lobby, is used for informal gatherings and meetings of the Senior Common Room (faculty affiliates, non-resident tutors, and resident tutors). It is sometimes appropriate for events hosted by student groups, particularly formal events that involve faculty or groups such as support groups that require an atmosphere of privacy.

The SCR is equipped with a TV and easy-to-use AV panel (SCR AV panel guide). All the buttons on the sides of the TV have been locked out -- the TV can only be operated from the touch panel. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THE TV directly. If you are planning an important presentation, please be sure to test ahead of time with your specific laptop configuration.

Arrangements for use of the room for special events should be made through the Reservations Coordinator, Arjun (Raj) Manrai.

The Leverett House Library

During the academic year, the Library is open 24 hours for studying. Please note that the collections in the Leverett Library are non-circulating. The on-line catalogue of the Harvard Libraries, HOLLIS, can be accessed from a computer in the Library.

Food and drinks (other than bottled water) are not allowed in the Library. There is a water fountain in the hallway as you enter. Food and beverages are only permitted in the Library Reading Room (L9) which is open for all students and located to the left before going up the main stairs to the Library.

There is a photocopy machine in the hallway as you enter the Library. Copies may be made using Crimon Cash.

Please contact if the copy machine is not working properly or if you have any questions about the Library.

Private Dining Room

This small quiet room accommodates 16 people and is located off the main dining hall. It may be used for language or special interest tables, or for special meals by members of Leverett House. Leverites may schedule one time-events in this facility by contacting . During meal times, reservations are limited to groups made up entirely or mostly of Leverett students. An exception may be made for a group that can show a compelling reason to need this space rather than the Light Court Seminar Room.

Library Theater

The Library Theater is a large room located down a stairway near the entrance to McKinlock from Mill Street. The Library Theater is ideal for group meetings, rehearsals, performances, and other events. The Library Theater is equipped with a projector, screen, and window shades, all of which are easy to control from an AV panel (Library Theater AV panel guide) located at the bottom of the stairs.

In general, theater groups will not have exclusive use of the space during the days of their practices/performances. These groups can reserve the space for a few hours a day, but other groups may use it at other times, so theater groups must plan to put away any valuable, dangerous or otherwise inappropriate setups after each use.

Historically used as a small theater primarily for plays and performances, it is also appropriate for meetings and rehearsals, particularly of groups too large to fit in the House's other reservable spaces or those that need lots of space to move around. Seating consists of folding chairs, which may need to be set up at the beginning of your event. If you plan to serve alcohol at your event, you will need to secure approval from the Office of Student Life (OSL). Please provide at least 2-3 weeks advance notice to obtain OSL approval and contact should you have any questions. The Library Theater is unlocked Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and may be reserved up to one week in advance through the automated room reservation system. It is also possible to reserve the Library Theater on weekends under certain circumstances; to enquire about a weekend event, please contact .

Please see here for more guidelines and regulations regarding use of the Library Theater space.
